All the more reason to have had your network adequately protected since installation rather than just since you noticed unauthorized access. In my opinion, your organization shoulders at least some of the blame here because you did not protect yourself. If you own a bank, you don't lock the front door with a pad lock and go home at night thinking you're secure. If you do, you shouldn't cry because you were burglarized.

There are just as many teenagers who know how to secure a network as there are who know how to hack a network. (They are the same teenagers.) If you don't know how to do it yourself, hire one for $20 and they'll hook you up.

Also, there's no telling how many crews of varying nationalities have used your Internet access. Was it really necessary to add "by Americans"?

You could make it a bit of an opportunity if you want to. If there's enough boaters coming through that need Internet access, I can help you get something set up that they can pay $0.99/day for access. For less than $7 and having the convenience of being on their own boats while being online 24 hours a day it's a pretty good deal. Adjust the rates and how much bandwidth they can use until you arrive at a workable number.
Thanks for the suggestions but we are retired and tired!!! Not interested in serving the public...we are more than willing to help in any emergencies.
